Branding Garry Alan Montgomery's behaviour as "disgraceful", Deputy District Judge John Connolly said that having worked in an A&E department himself, he knew how hard medical staff worked.
Montgomery, from Springfield Road, appeared at Belfast Magistrates' Court on Thursday to be sentenced on a charge of disorderly behaviour.
A Public Prosecution Service representative said that on 10 January this year, Montgomery was observed sitting on a doorstep outside a property on the Springfield Road.
He was subsequently taken to the A&E department at the Royal for treatment "in relation to an overdose."
Whilst in the A&E, Montgomery racially abused a black security guard before continuing the verbal abuse and shouting racist abuse at other members of staff, including doctors.
When he was warned by police about his behaviour, he then verbally abused the officers, using homophobic language.
A defence solicitor pointed out his client had pleaded guilty at the first opportunity and told the court "these offences were committed against a backdrop of his drug addiction."
Deputy District Judge John Connolly said the incident was "motivated by hostility" before jailing Montgomery for two months.
